a republican administration, in iraq? how about the failures of intelligence about reporting to the u.n. on weapons of mass destruction that no one could find? those are failures of intelligence. this may have been a failure of intelligence, it was corrected very quickly, it had terrible consequences, some americans were killed, including the u.s. ambassador. but it was by no means in the same league as the war in iraq. >> lynn? >> i want to quickly point out, the problem is what happened in the lead-up to the terrible murders in libya. not whether ambassador rice had a, had a bad explanation after the fact. what congress is doing is looking at why this happened. it could have been prevented. the appearance of ambassador rice on the sunday shows misspeaking, not good. but let's keep our eye on the ball on what the real problem is. >> lynn, bill, stand by. we'll be talking with you a little later in the hour. thank you so much for your perspective on this issue, this hour. this soon-to-be freshman congressman learned the hard way, it's tough to be a new kid on the block. why he literally
cruz your ambassador? >> the guy who thinks the u.n. is conspiring to eliminate golf courses? that guy? you have to love the logic there. we have these crazy people that we need to tame and we have this crazy person here. maybe he can talk to the crazy people. it's interesting logic, but to his point there about saying stupid things, saying offensive things, todd akin and richard mourdock, no question, they lost because of the stupid things they said. but they are not the ones who pushed such extreme policies. the whole republican party was pushing 1,100 anti-choice provisions in state legislatures. trying to shut down the government over defunding planned parenthood. so they have a bigger problem than just a couple candidates saying crazy things. >> i also think ted cruz nomination, if you will s a signal that the republican party thinks the tea party agenda is going to be part of the gop moving forward. they need an ambassador to those folks and the dna is still part of the doed. >> i think the tea party is a strong midterm force. so when the incumbent party does tend to lose, it may
writing a letter to president obama opposing the idea of nominating the current u.n. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, to secretary of state. it feels like on the domestic front we have a fiscal cliff and we're going to work things out, but there's still a lot of kind of opposition and you can hear in mccain's voice a dislike for where the president is heading. what does the republican party do now? cut deals? where do they go? we know where they went after 2008. they unified against obama. it worked for them in 2010. why did it not work in 2012? >> i think both sides will have to consolidate their bases. find out how much leeway each side has. and then they can come to the table and say, all right, can we raise rates or raise are revenue a little bit. can we cut -- how much can we cut entitlements? how much will the two sides be able to give and i think though you see in john boehner and in president obama two people who are willing to work together if they can get the wings, the fringe wings of either side to kind of get onboard and come together. >> you know, one
's link to the deep structure of the un years. the organ case has 47 pipes or the traditional motto, our tribute to christian civilization has 47 characters. did you know that at the time of pomona's first graduating class in 1984 there were 47 students enrolled and if you want to go deeper into the mystery, did you notice the last two digits equal 47 times 2? the article goes on like that for another 2,000 words. you know who else thought the number 47 kind of explained it all? >> 47% of the people who vote for the president obama no matter what. 47% who are with him who are satisfied with government and believe they are victims and government has the responsibility to care for them and believe that they're entitled to health care, food, housing, to you name it. these are people who pay no income tax, 47% of americans pay no income tax. so my job is not to worry about those people. >> mitt romney's famous comments on the 47% raise two questions. how can he say that? how can he say a single mom working two yobs and taking advantage of the child tax credit and a senior that worked all of
of the truce. joining me now, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. for special affairs, stewart is a special assistant to the president and is currently president and ceo of the nonpartisan meridian international center in washington. welcome, stewart, thank you for being here on thanksgiving. >> good morning. >> you were also partly raised in the middle east. your father served in the foreign service. you've seen firsthand from a young age that cease-fires have a history of collapsing. do you feel this one is different? >> well, no, actually, they're very fragile in the middle east. these cycles can break down at any moment. but in this case, what you have is the emergence of a consensus that, you know, on the israeli side, the cost of a ground invasion was not something that they sought. and also, on the palestinian side, that, you know, israel has such a strong military superiority, that looking at a way to kind of get the talks restarted is really the outcome that people look for here. but in the middle east, the memories are long. of course, this is a cycle that's been going on for half
of a conciliatory attitude towards u.n. ambassador susan rice. >> is there anything that ambassador rice can do to change your mind about her? >> sure. she can give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took. i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> she could conceivably get your vote for secretary of state? >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position. >> is this a case of bizarreo john mccain, the same guy that defended president obama against critics that said he was a muslim and can't be a president, and then he nominated sarah palin. >> i think it's another iteration of the game john mccain has been playing for a decade, goes on fox news and sounds like a moderate and then the "today" show and. how micro the republicans have kept this. susan rice owns libya in a real way. one of the people inside that room that pushed for the invasion. if the republicans thought they had some broader leverage here, if they thought they could make something out of libya as a whole, which may
replacements? they include senator john kerry or u.n. ambassador susan rice. of course, senator john kerry recently spent a lot of time with president obama. he helped him on debate preparations. another person who has been very vocal about wanting to leave if the president has a second term. treasury secretary timothy geithner. he's been the president's right hand man when it comes to the economy. he helped bring the economy back from the brink in 2009. possible replacements for geithner include the current chief of staff jack lou, who is widely respected within this administration but also within washington, d.c. another person who might potentially be leaving is defense secretary leon panetta. leon panetta is someone who might be ready to retire from what has been a long and distinguished career in politics. dates back to 1977 when he was in the house of representatives. possible replacements include his deputy secretary and also michelle flourney, the former undersecretary of defense. and then attorney general eric holder possibly leaving. possible replacements for him include homeland
slandering our ambassador to the u.n., susan rice. saying she didn't tell the truth about the attack on our consulate in libya. and even that she's not that the bright. but today, mccain came face to face with the facts. for the first time, we saw the cia talking points on which ambassador rice based her comments on the sunday talk shows. the cia said "the currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the u.s. embassy in cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the u.s. diplomatic post in benghazi and subsequently its annex. there are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations." and, of course, that's exactly what ambassador rice told the american people. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. we believe that it looks like extremist elements individuals joined in that -- in that effort. >> ambassador rice reported exactly what she was told by the cia. and testifyi
specifically, that he didn't want another big multi-country conflict in the world. he'd worked with the u.n. to keep that attack from happening. he had made his intentions clear and then england and france just went behind his back and did it anyway and they did it a week before he was facing re-election. >> president dwight d. eisenhower is re-elected to the highest office in the land as world peace faces the greatest crisis since the second world war. the electoral victory comes after a tumultuous campaign in which the major, domestic and foreign policies of this administration were put sharply an issue. >> especially that last week. dwight eisenhower ultimately pressured our allies to end that war. they did end it. he won re-election decisively that year in a victory that was partly attributed to his handling of that unexpected sudden foreign policy disaster that landed in the middle of the campaign a week and a day before election day. 1956. real october surprises like that one almost never happen. the phrase "october surprise" is really overused. we talk about october surprises as if t
to shrink people's access to the polls. it's unacceptable and un-american. >> good to have you on the program. thank you so much. now let me bring in former republican governor from new jersey. it's always good to see you and let me ask you first about your state because i saw this morning, i think there's still almost a million homes without power. so many schools are closed and another storm is coming. i mean, that's hard to believe. how are you all doing in new jers jersey and do you think it's going to have an impact on turnout? >> well, we're one of these people that don't have power. although being on a farm, we have a generator, so we're so much better off than the shore, but there are a lot of people that are still hurts. chris christie's a republican. he's doing everything he can to make sure people have the tount to vote. our polling place has been changed, but the signs are up. he's bringing in everything he can to ensure that people have access to the ballot. i don't know what went on in florida, but in this day and age, it's inexcusable that in this country, we hav
of state. john mccain sounds like he is softening his opposition to u.n. ambassador susan rice. >> is there anything that ambassador rice can do to change your mind? >> sure. she can give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took and i will be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> this past wednesday ambassador rice said she relied only on the information she was given by intelligence officials when she said the attack on the benghazi consulate was sparked by an anti-muslim film protest. sfx- "sounds of african drum and flute" look who's back. again? it's embarrassing it's embarrassing! we can see you carl. we can totally see you. come on you're better than this...all that prowling around. yeah, you're the king of the jungle. have you thought about going vegan carl? hahaha!! you know folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than antelope with night-vision goggles. nice! get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more.
think it is important. that susan wright, the un embassy came out on the five talk shows that said it was because of the video that the libya attack happened. look at what 60 minutes released on line. there are long passages and questions about whether or not it was a terrorism attack look at this and then you judge why they left it out sunday night after susan wright said it was the video. >> steve: steve croft asked the president. you went out of the way to avoid the word terrorism in connection with the statue of liberty attack. >> brian: mitt romney said the same thing >> chris: can they said his was political. the president responded it was too early to tell how it came about. it was an attack on americans. the president is rehuctant to call it terrorism. he said what group was involved. if there was a group involved with rpg's and knew within two hours afterwards that an affiliate of al-qaida claimed responsibility on social media and for the president to say we don't know which group? it is terrorist. >> gretchen: it is it why that was important story not included in the ori

aligned, by the way, with the u.n. but they come from about 63 to 68 different countries, and you have to remember that texas and iowa and pennsylvania said stay away from our polling places or else. but many other places they were welcomed, and after watching our election process, their takeaway was: astonishment. i mean, they were amazed that most u.s. states don't require voter id. they were confused about why there's no uniform system that each state kind of does its own thing, and they were puzzled by provisional ballots. that's where you walk in, and if your name's not on the voter rolls, you still have eligibility to vote, and then they check your status later on, if ever. they also commented on the lack of police presence at polling places, and they wondered how it is we keep people from sending in numerous ballots when you have mail-in ballots, and many, of course, have wondered the same thing. keep in mind, many of these observers come from countries where you give a thumb print to actually prove that you're a voters, you know, fingerprinted. and in gambia, megyn, they give y

. host: here is an interesting article. if all or on twitter says, what about the u.n. watchers that have been followed with threats of arrest? who are they and what are they here? -- why are they here? guest: they have come to elections in the last 20 years and moderate them. to be clear in terms of what they actually do the polls now, they are not trying to intervene in anything that is going on. they are observers. they are watching what is happening. they are taking notes. i actually got to see their observer form on saturday. at the end of the election, they come up with a report to talk about how the election went, how the system operated. it is something that happens all over the world. my view, it is really bad form for the attorney-general from texas, and also the secretary of state from iowa, who basically say we will arrest these observers as they come out and see our with elections. the truth of the matter is, we should be transparent about this process and willing to let people see how our elections run. host: from fox news, greta van susteren said, the election is none of th
morning, carol. >> up to nine hours to vote. that's just crazy. some might say that's un-american. what do you say to that, lz? >> i say it's going along as planned. this is not news to the officials who implemented these laws, limited the amount of hours which early voting can happen and saw this tidal wave coming with the hopes of what it would do to deter democrats voting for president obama. this was all part of the very diabolical plan. i'm disturbed and every american should be disturbed by this. >> florida's republican governor did fight to limit early voting and he won. he decreased the number of days. in retrospect, was that wise? >> look, here's the deal. it is unfortunate what's happened in these three or four florida counties, carol. but let me give you a couple of statistics to balance out lz's claims of diabolical. in 2000, 15% of the vote was early voting. in 2008, that was up to 30%. and this year, many are expecting the early voting will make up 40% of the voting electorate. the point is, it is getting easier to vote earlier and that's a good thing. but because we had prob

% of the raw vote is in as people look at the discrepancy there. connecticut,un, we talked about how this is a state on the one hand you would think a democrat could do well there, but she's a woman. she moderated her positions and she put a lot of money into it. >> she sure did, and she ran an entirely different campaign from the campaign she won last time. this was a sochter, more woman capaig las time she ran as a business success and told her personal story this time and was competitive. but chris enoughy, the democratic congressman, spent, as gwen mentions, $9 million-- not of his own money because he doesn't have it-- but he did win and it's a pickup for the democrats in the sense it was held by an independent, joe lieberman. >> the conventional view is if she had won this campaign last time she probably would have run it. it's to you to run against a national tide in a strong state red or blue. >> ifill: even with that much money. we have talked ad nausim about money and how it's corrupting thiks. >> i tend to think money is overrated. you have to get to a certain threshold to
